(Don't worry, I consulted Dr. Goljan on many of these) Hey, Sir Lord Goljan is aware of many of these posts and likes them. I am not sure if he will personally remember me though even though I too am trying to go into the mind of the NBME after jumping over Step 1. But I DID talk to oceans of post Step 1ers. I agree with them. This is the HARDEST test ever created by mankind. So do NOT feel bad if you fail over and over. It is the TEST that is hard (and unfair), it is NOT that you are stupid. Point is, don't EVER give up. Even if you have to take the test 20 times. As long as you can provide for your family and be healthy and you prayed to God that He wants you to be a doctor, you should NOT go off and be a dentist because you won't like it and you may be one of the many suicides. But, if you are like 55 years old or over, you may pray that God Tells you to stop. After 60, it will be hard to go through residency. However...if you pray and God Tells you, "Enough", and He Wants you to be a physical therapist or school teacher or administrator or a lawyer, then LISTEN and then stop trying to tackle Boards. The issues of the universe are MUCH bigger than all of the failures you face... Just keep smiling. Life is an illusion...but God is not an illusion. OK, let me stop babbling. A 60 yr old woman comes to you with left hip and thigh pain. The course started 6 months ago and gets WORSE when she stands OR walks. The labs show HIGH alk-phosphatase, HIGH urine hydroxPROLINE. X-ray shows osteolytic breaks and lots of osteoblasts! What is this? Is it a) multiple myelomab) paget's diseasec) osteoporosisd) hypoparathyroidism ORe) Paget's disease Guess first!!!
